Ageratum houstonianum 'Blue Puffs'

Flossflower, Floss Flower

Grown for their abundant clusters of small, fluffy flowers, Ageratums lend a soft, dainty effect in colors that range from deep blues to lavender, and from white to pink. The many-named dwarf varieties form mounds and are good for edging, mass planting and containers. Taller varieties make good cut flowers. Plants generally bloom from early summer through fall, if deadheaded. To prolong bloom in hot summer areas, plant in partial shade. All are sensitive to cold, so plant well after the last frost. In mild winter areas, plant in late summer for autumn flowering.
